S.Mereghetti (INAF, IASF-Milano), D.Gotz (CEA, Saclay),  C.Ferrigno,
E.Bozzo, V.Savchenko (ISDC, Versoix), L.Ducci (IAAT, Germany and ISDC,
Versoix) and J.Borkowski (CAMK, Torun) report:

a gamma ray burst lasting about 150 s has been detected by IBAS in the
IBIS/ISGRI
data at 6:18:20  UT of 14 December 2020.

The refined coordinates (J2000) are:

R.A.  =  170.9361  deg
DEC.  =  +33.8725  deg

with an uncertainty of  2.5   arcmin (90% c.l.).

A preliminary analysis gives a peak flux of about 0.1  ph/cm2/s (20-200
keV, 1-s integration time) and a fluence in the same energy range of about
5e-7  erg/cm2.

A plot of the light curve will  be posted at
